Lost My tackle Box on Minnetonka

9 posts in this topic

Hey Guys, I was out on Minnetonka on Saturday and I had one of my smaller clear plastic tackle holders fall out of my shack when I was moving to a new spot. If someone on here happened to stumble upon it around the Wayzata Bay area and is willing to give it back, I'd really appreciate it. It had all my panfish jigs in it and a bunch of hooks and miscellaneous stuff. I'd be willing to pick up a case of beer for the person that returns it! Thanks.

Sorry to hear of this Goggle, lets hope an F.M.'er finds it.

Good luck!

I lost a box full of trout flies a couple years ago, must have fallen out of a vest pocket. There was at least 100 flies in the box. I backtracked hoping to find it, but no luck. Now I write my name & phone number on my boxes with a Sharpie marker. I think most anglers are honest and if they found a box would return it if they knew who to call.

GoggleEye,

after looking at the tracks on the way back to the access, it almost looks like the guy with the permanent shack must have stopped and picked it up.

Still sux either way you look at it.

Put your name and number on everything! I think the vast majority of anglers are of stock that would call you up!

Ya, I will be putting my name and number on things from now on. This sucks, but nobody ever said fishing was cheap!! I just lose more than the average guy! Oh well, start from scratch and try to build my jig collection back up to what it was......

      I just checked the cedar Island Access there was about two-and-a-half to three inches of ice

      Not sure how much ice, but guys walking out with portables in the bay this morning.

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Yeah I thought if that. Just looking for other opinions.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
